The 73rd Emmy Awards was just put on in LA Sunday and, from how TV’s elite behaved, the Wuhan virus is supposedly over.
In a crowded room, there was not a mask to be seen as TV’s self-reported greatest packed around tables just inches away from each other in what was called an “outdoor” ballroom that definitely featured four walls and a roof. Dancing, singing and kissing each other on the cheek made it seem like a repeat of the 2019 Emmys when nobody understood what a Wuhan was.
Three main take aways from the #Emmys opening number:
1) What is happening? And I mean this in the possible best way
2) Half of Hollywood doesn't know how to clap to the beat
3) This is giving so much Covid-19 super spreader anxiety pic.twitter.com/pFcxAFRZbc

The lack of social distance and masks — the same thing for which your average American would be scolded for by many of these same elites now having a party without these restrictions — was not missed by people in the room.
Seth Rogen presented an award and highlighted the lack of COVID protocol forced onto everyday Americans across the nation in a half-serious monologue.
“Good to be at the Emmys,” Rogen said. “Let me begin by saying: there are way too many of us in this small room – what is happening? They said it was outdoors—it’s not! That was a lie. Are we are in a hermetically-sealed tent.”

“I would not have come and why is there a roof? It is more important that there are three chandeliers than being sure we don’t murder Eugene Levy, that was decided. This is crazy. I went from wiping my grocery bags to Paul Bettany sneezing in my face—so, it’s a big week! If anyone will sneeze in my face, Paul, I like that it’s you.”

The current LA County guidance is vert clear: “The LA Health Officer Order forced people aged 2 years and over, regardless of vaccination status, to use a face mask in indoor settings, including all private businesses, and in outdoor large scale events.”
And yet, our alleged betters meet in L.A. so they can party without a mask since they want to see people and have a good time. But for the normal folk to have to follow a different set of rules than the elite follow is more of the same coronavirus hypocrisy that’s typified the covid-19 era.
